We had dinner at Pacific Grill in Tacoma last night. What a great place to eat. The food was marvelous and the staff was stellar. My New York steak was perfectly done. All four of us really enjoyed our meals. The manager was extremely well versed in their wine collection. We'll go back.

I have tried this place twice and it's still the same report. I don't understand why this is the #1 place. The food is ok nothing spectacular for seafood at all. The oysters were very good. There were 4 of us and we couldn't find anything on the menu that was worthy of ordering so we went for the New... More

They have the best happy hour in town. All menu items are 1/2 off from 2-close, in the bar. Great house wine pours. If you want a nice relaxing lunch in a quiet elegant setting this is the spot. It seems like most happy hours have such low quality food, this place does not. Service is usually pretty good I've... More

This is my 1st time in the Seattle area, so this restaurant just happen to be right next door to our hotel, which scores major points on the convenience factor. I did read the other reviews after I ate so as to not...contaminated my viewpoints. Dinner was good, I ordered the 8oz filet mignon (medium rare of course). The steak... More

The service is great, attentive but not overly, brought us everything we asked for and answered questions, polite and friendly. Just great service. The food was amazing, the filet mignon melted in my mouth, even the side dishes were great. Desert was big enough for two to share it was great but didn't overshadow the wonderful dinner we had just... More
